Sharing a Love of Nature Gallery

Summer Camp 720

Throughout the year, we offer diverse and engaging educational opportunities for children of all ages. From school plantings to summer camps, we share our love of the outdoors with kids inside and outside the classroom.

These galleries show just some of the fun we have while learning about our Island woods. Whether hiking through the woods, planting rare native shrubs, or making an owl mask, our educational activities provide kids with the opportunity to laugh, learn, and fall in love with nature!
